About Rising Villages

Let's pause the zoom calls for a day shall we?

The world is struggling right now. You may be struggling right now. We get it and we see you.

Let go of the craziness around you for a day and let's hang out, laugh and learn in this amazing camp setting.

Hosted by an extraordinary team of camp counselors and guest speakers, you will leave feeling energized & happy.

The Rising Villages staff can't wait to welcome you in May & June so make sure you have your name on the waitlist!

About our retreats

For Youth & Young Adults 12-24yrs

Our Why

Young people are struggling at an all-time high rate in 2021.

Our What

One-day camps to reflect on the year behind us and reconnect to what’s most important in the year ahead- *Covid Safety compliant*

Our Who

Sea to Sky youth & young adults 12-24yrs who want to be part of an inclusive, rad community that cares about the same issues they do.

Our Where

Beautiful Camp Summit in Squamish Valley is our location partner.

Our How

You name it, we will go there. Together. By the end of the day each participant leaves having pushed themselves a little and feeling amazing about it. Games, circles, challenges and of course campfire and s'mores.

For Teams and Workplaces


Let's pause the zoom calls and remote work for a day and get outside, together to reconnect. Why? because our mental health and the health of our workplaces is screaming at us to pause, reflect, regroup and recharge.

Far enough yet close enough

Just a short one hour drive from Vancouver up the stunning Sea to Sky highway, Camp Summit in Squamish is far enough for you to decompress and disconnect, yet close enough to be home at the end of the workday.

À la carte

Right now we are welcoming teams of 30-50 for a day of outdoor learning, connection and challenge. We'll work with you to design exactly what your team needs: Catering, campfires, conversation and challenges.

Trusted partners

Christine McLeod (your host) has over 20+ years experience in facilitation, event planning and leadership development. Her network and team are at your service for this offsite experience.

Your team will thank you

We say "we're too busy" but we NEED this time to pause, reflect on the year behind us and regroup individually and as a team. In PERSON. Connected to ourselves, each other and the companies we work in... knowing we are in this together.
